Close. "with either a cupola or with bay windows"

https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-4963.21

I'm not sure that is it. It is listed as 1953. The law I'm think of was around 1915. Let me find it...

Prior to this Ohio River and Western cabooses did not have cupolas.

Nice Chris! They likely didn't have bay window cabooses in 1915. :D The 1953 law might have been a driven by the NKP. Interesting trivia.

There were cabooses with bay windows....

Canadian Pacific for one at least had early cabooses with cupolas and little extended bay windows on the sides.

Not sure how "common" something like this was though.
